This week SC’s Scoop turned one year old, which means I’ve completed a full year of blogging! Say what!?!
It’s amazing to me to think about what I have done in the past year and think about how life was when I began this blog. Blogging is something I thought about doing for years before I pulled the trigger. Now I look back and think, “Why didn’t I start sooner?”
At the same time, blogging has been much harder than I thought it would be. I have put more time and energy into it than I expected to, but at the same time all the effort I put into this blog is a direct reflection of how much I enjoy it. Before I begin to ramble (and bore you!), I want to share the most popular blog posts and my personal favorite blog posts since SC’s Scoop began.

My Personal Favorite Posts
I’ve learned A LOT in this past year and recently shared some advice for new bloggers that may be helpful if you are thinking about starting one. My favorite things about blogging are building relationships with other bloggers and having ownership over a creative outlet that also acts as a filing system for memories.
The two biggest highlights for this past year have been my nomination for the Blogger Recognition Award and monetizing my blog. I did not originally create my blog to make money off of it, so creating an income stream has been eye-opening and exciting. It is amazing to think how my skills have improved with marketing, social media and search engine optimization as well.
I would love to know what you’ve enjoyed about my blog, and if you have any favorite posts. For my fellow bloggers, what did you learn in your first year? Did you have any special moments or big highlights? What is your favorite thing about blogging? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Cheers & have a great weekend!
